As Israel's massive onslaught on Gaza continues, the West Bank has been under an overwhelming Israeli assault long before October 7, 2023. Along with its unabated military campaigns and incursions against Palestinians every single day, Israeli authorities have intensified and deepened the fragmentation of the WB turning it to separated de-facto Bantustans. Thousands of Palestinians were detained in the WB since October 7, and hundreds were killed by military and settlers' fire. And while some parties (including the U.S administration) pay a lip service to a political plan that would "somehow" lead to the recognition of "a state for the Palestinians) in the Occupied Territories, Israel is on a relentless policy to annex the vast area of the WB and perpetuate its control over the rest of it.
